Tom Hiddleston is completely smitten by American singer/songwriter Taylor Swift. The 35-year-old actor who is one of the top contenders to be the next James Bond is reportedly ready to sacrifice career for love.

A source told Hollywood Life: "Tom is a hopeless romantic when it comes to Taylor. His close friends and trusted advisors have been in meetings with him all week trying to talk him out of love. While he was in LA those closest to Tom were trying to convince him that continuing to be withTaylor will hurt his career but he refuses to listen to anyone."

"The James Bond role he has been chasing is pretty much off the table unless he dumps Taylor asap, but Tom refuses to listen to reason. Producers have shied away from Tom as the next Bond since his involvement with Taylor. Producers aren't fans of the type of attention Taylor brings to any Bond film," the insider added.

"Tom's people are telling him to get away from Taylor before she torpedoes his entire career but his love for her is real and he does not believe that she can damage his sparkling reputation," the source continued.

Hiddleston had previously expressed his feelings for the Bad Blood hitmaker. The Night Manager star told The Hollywood Reporter: "Well, um. How best to put this? The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy. Thanks for asking."

"That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt," he added.
